Spit and polish


Well, here's the new paint job. It came out stellar if I say so myself. The gold cove stripe rocks!Click the images for larger views. Now if I can just get the outboard to run! Damned thing.

Here she is primed, sanded and ready for painting:

Here she was with the old paint, old wooden mast, old green bottom paint. She needed love.
